INTERESTING on Current Health Care in #Syria

Close friend had his wrist broken & needed surgery. Went to private section of a public hospital. Syrian doctor who used to work in Germany operated on him. Cost? SYP 13,000 or US$ 30.

How is it so cheap I ask? Read on =>
2- Turns out, Assad had personally instructed all public hospitals to charge for operations the same rate as before the war started. Given fact that local currency is now 1/10 of its value, an operation such as this now cost US$30 versus US$ 300 before the crisis started
3-While all may not be well in #Syrian healthcare, this is merely to describe how Damascus has decided to insulate this sector from inflation that has hit all other areas of household consumption. State is aware that Syrians are desperately in need of affordable healthcare

From Shabaa to Maarbeh all borders with occupied Golan Heights & with #Jordan are free & under the control of the #Syrian Army.
#ISIS in Yarmouk Bassin is totally defeated eliminated by the Syrian Army & its allies. East of Qunietra Jabbat al-Khashab & Tarnaja r almost over.
More than 13,000 Jihadists of ex-Jabhat alNusra (aka HTS which is the same) have been shipped from the south of Syria to #Idlib (to those ignorants saying "no jihadists in the south).

In #Idlib, there are around 2 million people, including IDP. Thousands of civilians are leaving DAILY the biggest Jihadists stronghold after Tora Bora through a corridor established by #Russia from #Idlib towards the Government-controlled area.

41 killed and 30 wounded in #ISIS (3) suicide #PBIEDs and militants group attack in the (druse) southern #Syrian city of #Suweida this morning, precisely in the open fruit market.

Syrian security killed the attackers following a street fight.

ISIS has a presence in #Quneitra.
#ISIS attacked four villages, south- East, bordering al-Badiya (Syrian steppe) before reaching #Suweida market. The group used the element of surprise and still engaged with the Syrian army in many spots.

ISIS has the possibility to mount deadly attacks

Death toll of #Suweida increased to 50 and 78 wounded caused by #ISIS.

#BreakingNews:

Firing from above the #Lebanese Bekaa Valley (violating the Lebanese airspace), #Israel bombed #Syrian positions by launching at least 3 missiles against the province of Hama.
The Israeli jets attack of the Misyaf area is unusual and taking place for the first time before the nigh fall.

#Israel is able to violate the Lebanese airspace and attack #Syria because the Lebanese Army is not allowed (by US) to have anti-air missiles.

#Russia offered to provide the Lebanese government with defensive weapons but the offer was rejected.

Important Thread that describes why Southern Front (and other areas) seem to fall quickly into #SyrianArmy hands once military operations get underway. The answer lies in the painstaking secret negotiations/reconciliations that Damascus has long invested in ==>
2-Take #Daraa where key members of Syrian leadership decided to invest significant time & resources traveling back and forth to the region in the hope of reaching out to opposition leaders. This process linked into higher gear early in 2015 & when Damascus knew #Geneva would fail
3-As negotiations/reconciliations seemed to proceed, however, Damascus soon discovered a pattern. Leaders who engaged in such talks soon lost financial & military support of their sponsors. Those countries quickly found new leaders willing to sabotage the seemingly agreed deals

#Israel should be happy to have the Syrian Army back on the borders in Assuweida-Daraa-Quneitra as it was the case for thirty odd years without any significant incident,rather than protecting uncontrollable salafi-Wahhabi radicals who can wake up from one day two another & attack
The war in Syria is almost over: #ISIS will continue attacking (with no strategic purposes like in #Iraq), #Idlib and al-Hasaka are considered under occupation forces. Now the Syrian government can call for general elections any time in liberated #Syria

The last remaining pocket is expected to fall slowly but surely. It might take some time after the US-Russia summit next month to agree on removing #ISIS (Jaish Khaled bin al-waleed) from Quneitra.

Civilians living in #Idlib will think carefully.

#Syria launched 10s of missiles against 4 #Israel/I military objectives in the occupied #GolanHeight in response to continuous Israeli provocation of war (hitting Syrian & allies' targets in various locations).

#Israel/I jets violated #Lebanon airspace last night to bomb #Syria
#Israel continuous provocation to trigger another war in #Syria w/ #Iran has been met with Iranian refraining from retaliating coz it is due to the hosting country to respond.

#Russia is constantly asking #Damascus to avoid falling into Israel's trap

#Israel intercepted 4 out of 20 missiles launched by #Syria air defence system into occupied #GolanHeight. 16 missiles reached their targets according to Damascus.

#Israel, before the Syrian retaliation, bombed several targets in #Syria for the fourth time in less than a month.

.@StateDept: There is no doubt about #Assad regime's pattern of chemical weapons. Since 2014, the OPCW assigned responsibility to Assad for multiple sarin & chlorine attacks. We've noticed there’s an awful lot of Russian #Propaganda out there, so we thought we’d offer some facts:
FACT: The #Syrian regime used chemical weapons near #Douma on April 7, killed at least 45 people and sickening hundreds more. Our information is consistent and corroborated by multiple sources, from military intelligence to social media users, NGOs to international organizations.
FACT: The joint U.S.-UK-France strikes were a justified, legitimate and proportionate response to the #Syria government's continued use of chemical weapons on its own people.

1+/ Many Syrians I spoke to on the ground told me:" We have tried the opposition, #AQ #ISIS. Because of these, we are so grateful to return under the ruling of a government no matter who is ruling. These have destroyed our country with no purpose but to return to 2011 situation".
2+/ Syrians on the ground, who were opposing #Assad:" Different rebels fought one another in the street, over taxes, money, food supply, humanitarian aids, imposing taxes on merchandise w/o offering security at least. We are at a point where #Assad looks almost as a saver to us".
3+/ #Syrian. on the ground told me:" Eight years of war for no purpose. Today the west wants to bomb us. We don't care anymore because we want either to die or to end this nightmare and go back to our previous life".

In few moments will share some information about the forthcoming war in #Syria.

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

#BreakingNews:
The first busses carrying hundreds of "Jaish al-Islam" and members of their families are leaving NOW #Duma. The beginning of clearing #Damascus. #Syria.
626 "Jaish al-Islam" militants/families have left #Ghouta towards #Aleppo - #Jarablus . The evacuation is slow because the Syrian Army wants to make sure the 100s of millions (JAL requested to take away $900 m but the request was rejected) r not taken away

#Turkey knows that #Damascus is not acting alone and that #Russia is not far from seeing the Central government regain control of the Kurdish #Afrin enclave when #Kurds accepted all the Syrian gov conditions +
In the coming weeks, #Russia and #Ankara will have to find a way out to save #Turkey's face and present a scenario where everybody is a winner, including the #Kurds who have managed to save the destruction of the enclave.+

#Russia is discussing/finalising with #Turkey the cease-fire in #Afrin to allow 4000 #SAA men to take control of the entire city, surrounding villages, establish 52 positions in the enclave and deploy forces on the borders with #Turkey.
Thos who believe the deployment of the Syrian army will only be on the 160 km along the borders with #Turkey are mistaken because that was the initial request of the Afrin administration from day one, rejected by the government of #Damascus.
#Few minutes ago, #Damascus was informed that #Turkey is still rejecting few articles in the deal regarding #Afrin. Negotiators are still positive and hope to undo the problem in the next hours.

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.

Missiles launched over #Damascus; Rockets over the Golan Heights and a drone downed over #Israel: all in the last hour.

Israel said it is "an #Iranian drone". If that is the case, it is a "forced reconnaissance" to exhaust the Israeli defence system, #Hezbollah's style.
